This is a message to chocolate lovers everywhere, whether you are young, old, or somewhere in between, there’s a brand new chocolate that you simply have to try.
The nations favourite chilli enthusiasts, South Devon Chilli Farm, had added a new Honeycomb Chilli Chocolate to their already exciting range. This chocolate offers a hint of chilli warmth, and is a true taste sensation.
Gorgeous plain, Belgian chocolate has been subtly blended with selected chillies grown at the South Devon Chilli Farm and a hefty serving of chunky Honeycomb has also been added. Developed thanks to the assistance and the taste buds of YET, the Young Enterprise Team from Oreston Community Academy, Plymouth, this chocolate has been produced for both adult and child chocoholics.
The combination of chocolate and chillies has been popular in South America and Mexico since the Mayans and Aztecs and they really do go together superbly. Dick and James Strawbridge recently visited the South Devon Chilli Farm, as featured on The Hungry Sailors programme (19th January 2012, ITV). Commenting on the Chilli Chocolate, James said: “It smells amazing. Rich, dark and full of promise. We should look at using Chilli Chocolate in our cooking as well as fresh chillies.” (Go to link – http://www.itv.com/itvplayer/video/?Filter=301019).
